Whether you have an in-house creative department, external resources, or both, PrintLynxx provides a formal means for collaboration among the people who create your marketing and communication materials and those who approve, produce, distribute, implement and pay for the project.
Spec and Asset Management
PrintLynxx ensures consistency between creative vision and final output. We provide intuitive tools for sharing and delivery of creative and brand assets. Templates, wizards and archives make writing perfect specifications simple. Workflow automation puts specifications in the right hands at the right time.
Clear Budgeting and Scheduling
Because PrintLynxx clearly delineates between budgeting, estimating and final pricing, establishing accurate financial numbers is simplified. Our software automates schedule building, establishes proofing workflows and outlines delivery and distribution requirements across multiple vendors and distribution points.
Better Control Over Any Method
Whether you source marketing projects through competitive pricing, negotiation or direct contract, PrintLynxx turns time-consuming, hassle-filled sourcing tasks into a precise, convenient and efficient operation. You will obtain the quality you demand, in the time you require and at the low price you seek.
Connect Specs to Capability
By objectively qualifying your vendors and establishing project specifications, you set the groundwork for vendor identification. When using our optional competitive method, PrintLynxx will automatically identify which of your vendors’ capabilities and qualifications match your specifications. Even if you use negotiation or contract sourcing PrintLynxx streamlines the process.
Hassle-Free Requests for Pricing
PrintLynxx automatically routes uniform requests for pricing to your qualified vendors. Responses are securely routed back and documented. Authorized personnel may execute the purchase order with a single click, or pricing information can be automatically routed through your approval process eliminating fragmented back and forth communication.
Built-In Policy Administration
You can rest assured that every project managed through PrintLynxx will be in full compliance with your organizational policies, rules, regulations, terms and conditions. From forms and notices of non-objective requirements, to certification and business status initiatives, compliance is ensured. Plus, those with the authority can override automated attributes as needed.
